    What kind of oil do you use?

    As of late, I've stuck with Kirkland brand synthetic in 5W-30. I have some Mobil EP 5W-30 from the last rebate but probably won't replenish. Before Kirkland/SuperTech I mainly bought PP 5W-30 for changes. I have one oil for my entire fleet of vehicles, none of which are either direct...

    NEW 3/17/23, Quaker State Ultimate Protection FS w/20k mi or 1 yr guarantee

    Well... there are different cultural norms depending on which Walmart you visit. In New York Ci I bought 30 quarts of Kirkland 5W-30 synthetic for $19 per 5-quart jug. I had a $500 Costco gift certificate which was part of the calculus but about $20 per 5-quart is the bottom end of the...

    How many times have you switched sides on the thick vs. thin debate?

    As I've typed this post...... about six times. It is causing me psychological distress.

    Any love for Motul oil?

    If they start putting pictures of naked ladies on the bottle I'll consider buying it.

    Need Dexos1 Gen3 5W-30 Recommendation

    I have 5-quarts of Mobil EP 5W-30 too. I was tempted by the last rebate which was not worth the effort. I buy mainly off the price for a product that meets an industry certification. I try not to bounce around too much which is easier these days than it used to be, but I'm not brand...

    HPL 0w-20 ... More money than sense...

    You are wasting your money. Just kidding... do what makes you feel good about your vehicles. It isn't that much money to spend on premium fluids and if it gives you satisfaction, it is money well spent.

    Need Dexos1 Gen3 5W-30 Recommendation

    Just throw a dart at that list. My dart keeps hitting the Kirkland 5W-30 as I have about 40 quarts in the garage.

    Post your latest oil purchase or even filter.

    Another 20 quarts of Kirkland 5W-30 are going into the stash. I've stuck with the Kirkland more faithfully than I do most flavors. I like the Kirkland Olive Oil too, which shows promising results on my blood test.

    What Happens When Oil Changes Are Ignored, Poor Care?

    There is a lot of (edit - Mod) that is just difficult to measure and prove. Many of these studies that show an ass hair difference in wear rates shouldn't be driving your decision on how to take care of a vehicle. When in doubt, follow the manual and stop reading this site.

    Do you have any info on how GM tested Mobil 1 in the Corvette?

    I'm sure they checked the dip stick to make sure it had oil while in development.

    How many times have you switched sides on the thick vs. thin debate?

    Is there a debate? Am I required to pick sides? My motorcycles live on 15W-40 Rotella T4 so I must be in the thick camp but I run 5W-30 all year in my cars. For the motorcycles, they don't need a winter grade because frankly, I don't drive them unless it is 50 degrees F or above. Our...

    kia engine issues...really serious or overinflated?

    I've had four Hyundai Elantras a Kia Forte, and a Kia Rio, and I never had anything but routine maintenance on any of them. I drive my current 2020 Hyundai for work and I'm at 41,000 on this one and it is my favorite. It is just a simple car and I love the powertrain on this one with the...

    New M1 EP labels ("Triple Action Formula")

    I hate when they use all these high-tech sciencey words and concepts. They should just stick with the star system for labeling.

    Universal ATF/CVT fluid in my 2019 Nissan Pathfinder

    I'm sticking with OEM fluid for my CVT. Your single unselfish act of taking one for the BITOG team isn't sufficient to change my behavior. LOL....
